I lost a cousin, a best friend and a brother this past Saturday. Donnie was all those things to me. We grew up together in Snowbird. Playing ball, swimming, hanging out, going to concerts and taking care of our younger siblings and cousins. Donnie was the oldest of our group of cousins. Everybody looked up to him. He was the leader in our group. Donnie was one of the smartest people I've ever known. He had a wealth of knowledge on almost any subject. He was funny, smart and had a kind heart. My condolences go out to his entire family. He will be missed. There is no word for goodbye in Cherokee so....Until we meet again my Brother.
